Forum: opensource_movies Subject: forcing proper aspect ratio on system derived files

Hello,

I've just uploaded files for a short documentary. My piece is 16:9 widescreen. The .mov and ,wmv files I uploaded look fine but the system derived MPEG4 files and streams are at an incorrect 4:3 aspect.

How do (preferably) I force the system to re-derive @ 16:9, or alternatively, remove these incorrect files and streams from the page?

Thanks for your help.

i'm about to release an updated deriver
that will handle widescreen video.

if you let me know the name of the item
i can rederive it now using the testcode base
and see how that goes?

Hi Tracy,

for the documentary, I wound up encoding my own flash file and swapping it with the derived version, but I have a couple other 16:9 files that you can do your test with:

i have started rederiving them
and it looks like they are getting correctly
classified as widescreen and should have
good looking derivatives when they finish,
woot!

PS i'll prolly go live with the new widescreen deriver
tomorrow so our patrons can take advantage of it too!
